Key Chemistry Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • a-Amino acid

    An amino acid in which the amino group is on the carbon adjacent to the carboxyl group.

  • alkaloids

    Naturally occurring amines isolated from plants.

  • anti-periplanar

    A conformation in which a hydrogen atom and a leaving group are separated by a dihedral angle of approximately 180°.

  • Atropisomers

    Enantiomers that lack a chiral center and differ because of hindered rotation.

  • crystal-field theory

    A theory that accounts for the colors and the magnetic and other properties of transition-metal complexes in terms of the splitting of the energies of metal ion d orbitals by the electrostatic interaction with the ligands. (Section 23.6)

  • diazonium salt

    An ionic compound that is formed upon treatment of a primary amine with NaNO2 and HCl.

  • disrotatory

    In electrocyclicreactions, a type of rotation in which the orbitalsbeing used to form the new s bond must rotate in opposite directions (one rotates clockwise while the other rotates counterclockwise).

  • hydrogen bonding

    A special type of dipole-dipole interaction that occurs between an electronegative atom and a hydrogen atom that is connected to another electronegative atom.

  • irreversible process

    A process that cannot be reversed to restore both the system and its surroundings to their original states. Any spontaneous process is irreversible. (Section 19.1)

  • lambda max (lmax)

    In UVVis spectroscopy, the wavelength of maximum absorption.

  • Optically active

    Refers to a compound that rotates the plane of plane-polarized light

  • peptide bond

    A bond formed between two amino acids. (Section 24.7)

  • Primary structure of proteins

    The sequence of amino acids in the polypeptide chain, read from the N-terminal amino acid to the C-terminal amino acid.

  • quintet

    In NMR spectroscopy, a signal that is comprised of five peaks.

  • Radical inhibitor

    A compound such as a phenol that selectively reacts with radicals to remove them from a chain reaction and terminate the chain

  • radioactive decay chain

    A series of nuclear reactions that begins with an unstable nucleus and terminates with a stable one. Also called nuclear disintegration series. (Section 21.2)

  • saponification

    Hydrolysis of an ester in the presence of a base. (Section 24.4)

  • saturated solution

    A solution in which undissolved solute and dissolved solute are in equilibrium. (Section 13.2)

  • sigma (s) bond

    A bond that is characterized by circular symmetry with respect to the bond axis.

  • Unsaturated hydrocarbon

    A hydrocarbon containing one or more carbon-carbon double or triple bonds. The three classes of unsaturated hydrocarbons are alkenes, alkynes, and arenes
